How many embryos are transferred in one cycle?

1 answer

Elective Single Embryo Transfer (e-SET) is becoming popular for women who are young and have good ovarian reserve. While transferring multiple embryos improves the pregnancy rate, it also increases the risk of multiple gestation. Children who are a result of multiple pregnancies have an increased risk of health problems, because of the increased risk of preterm delivery and low birth weight. With the advent of better embryo selection strategies, such as CGH testing, SET may become the norm in the future. However, it is always important to discuss your prognosis and treatment with your physician before making any decisions regarding transfer.
